Credit where credit is due and I have to say that on my most recent visit the quality and presentation of the food was the best I have experienced at this venue in the last 5 years if not longer. Bearing in mind that on performance nights the restaurant has to serve everyone at more or less the same time... More

We booked a table for 4 for 6pm but, due to horrendous traffic; arrived late and very stressed at 25 past 6. We asked if we could just have one course as we we're going to see the Fab 'Billy Elliot' which started at 7.30. We were assured repeatedly that we would comfortably have time to fit in two courses... More

We attended this restaurant for a pre theatre meal. My family enjoyed the cuisine but felt it was a little overpriced. Worth a visit but would probably attend a local restaurant in the Cardiff Bay Area next time.

Whilst the food was OK'ish - the service was dreadful. We waited ages between courses with our used dishes still on the table. I had lamb for my main course - we had to ask for mint sauce and salt/pepper. My wine glass was empty after our starters but nobody asked if we wanted a refill !! Cheeseboard was served... More

This Resurant is fully open to the public but is wrongly perceived to be a pre-performance resturant. The food is always delivered to a high quality in pleasant surroundings at a modest cost. A must try venue.

Pre show meal before the wonderful Billy Elliot. Food is top notch and fantastic value for money especially if ypu have a Promise card. Dont forget to pop in for after show drinks! Highly recommended.

Had a lovely lunch last Saturday just before going to the afternoon theatre performance. Good choice of starter main and puddings Pleasant restaurant plenty of space and good views not at all rushed and thanks to the fine attendance of Luke Langley an all together great experience!

Went here for lunch before going to see Billy Elliot. We both really enjoyed from start to finish. Staff were helpful and attentive. Good selection of wine. Lovely place to sit, relax and people watch whilst eating good quality, locally sourced food. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

We were a mixed party of 13 ranging from 11 years old to 70 + dining pre show. The food was excellent, as always but the service was exceptional. Staff were competent and knowledgeable. There is always a good choice on the menu and vegetarian options. Portions are of a sensible size and there is always something new and interesting.... More
